With great sadness I came across Ria's obituary when I checked the web site at Kessel's to enquire about having some upholstering done. Over the years Ria helped me many times at the shop, always with a smile, a cheerful spirit, and a friendly manner. It was always a joy to head towards Kessel's to have some work done and to be helped with such open and generous kindness. My sincerest condolences to the Kessels-Walciuk family. Dianne Richardson

To the entire Kessels-Walciuk Family, my deepest condolences. I am absolutely devastated to learn of Ria's passing. I have worked with Ria many times over the years on many projects for my home and always looked forward to seeing her and sharing a laugh. She was an exceptional woman and one of the kindest people I have ever had the pleasure of knowing. She will be dearly missed. My thoughts and prayers are with you all through this difficult time.
